Sweat Proof Makeup! Rae Cosmetics Review

We were recently sent some products to review from Rae Cosmetics.  Their cosmetic line is specially formulated for athletes, and women who need heat and perspiration resistant makeup.  And really, even if you aren't working up a sweat, isn't it a great feeling to know that your makeup won't slide on you during the day?  Here's what we thought of these products:

L-R
Surface Primer SPF 20, $38 for 1 oz
Bungalow Glow Mineral Bronzer, $39 
Bright Eyes, $27

I like this primer just as much as any of my other primers in terms of performance.  I felt like it made a great, lightweight base for my makeup.  My favorite thing about this is the SPF 20, and my least favorite thing was the tiny amount of primer for the high pricetag ($38).

I really love this bronzing palette.  There palette has one matte and one shimmery shade, which is just perfect for achieving a bronze glow and a contour on the cheeks.  I love using the left shade on the apples of my cheeks, and the right shade as a cheek contour and around my hairline.  The only thing I wish I could change would be to have a brush built in underneath so I could more easily tote this around with me, BUT I don't normally touch up my bronzer during the day so maybe that would be a waste of space.

I couldn't really tell if the serum side did much for me.  Did it really tighten up my undereye circles and fine lines?  I honestly couldn't tell a difference.  Also, the water based concealer didn't prove to be enough coverage for me- I normally use a thicker concealer. I did like how lightweight it felt on my skin, but wish the performance delivered a little more.  If I was truly going for a run or getting sweaty I'm not sure it would've stepped up enough to give me the coverage I needed.

Have you ever heard of or tried Rae Cosmetics?  Give them a try or swing by their Facebook page and send them a little love- www.facebook.com/Raecosmetics

These products were sent for review, but do not change my honest opinion.  I was not compensated for this review.

Yours in Beauty,
Justina
